Then is when I bring to mind that it is natural to lose interest in things that used to excite me and it is ok to feel down or depressed... but I must understand that this sorrow is a temporary stage; it is just a stage for healing. By accepting my pain, I heal my mind and soul.
After, when my self-esteem is low and need to get motivated to get back on track, to get active again, I just set up the alarm clock, open my eyes and focus on breathing... then, I set a small goal, a tiny action plan to achieve for that day, a small task that I know if I focus I will finish; that I will accomplish it!
Then, next day come up with another action plan, achieve it and the third day achieve it again… By acting on my small daily-action plans, I begin to move forward step by step.
In time, these actions build a positive momentum; my mind starts to envision successful results and these re-enforce my self-confidence.
That fulfillment makes me feel great again; I feel that I'm accomplishing and therefore, begin to enjoy life again.
Then is when it becomes exciting again to get out of bed!
